Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between agreed value and coinsurance?

The agreed value endorsement in a property insurance policy waives the coinsurance clause. Coinsurance does not get applied at all if there is an agreed value statement on the policy. Generally, insureds add the agreed value endorsement in the chance that their property value may be valued less than its actual value.

What is an agreed amount clause in a co insurance policy?

Coinsurance with Agreed Amount Clauses. Because co-insurance policies require the payment of deductibles before the insurer will bear any cost, policyholders absorb more costs up front. Using the agreed amount clause, if a loss should happen, the insurer will assess the property based on the agreed-upon value.

How long is an agreed amount subject to coinsurance?

The typical period subject to the agreed amount is one year. If the one-year period expires without renewal, coverage automatically reverts to being subject to coinsurance at the time of loss. Understandably, many insurance purchasers do not understand the concepts of agreed amount or coinsurance.

What happens if the coinsurance percentage is less than the cost?

If the replacement amount is less than the coinsurance percentage, a penalty is applied, reducing the claim payment. For example, a policyholder has $600,000 of property insurance and a fire causes $200,000 in damages. The claim is calculated by dividing the amount of insurance purchased ($600,000) by the value at time of loss ($800,000).
